New Horizons Boys Ranch is a faith-based residential program focused on character maturity and family unity. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like atmosphere where troubled adolescents take on constructive life attitudes, flourish in their faith, experience a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We balance hard work with inviting recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our gorgeous mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
A therapeutic boarding school that strives to develop academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Adolescents come to New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from South Dakota, and often find it advantageous to experience a new environment detached from local peer groups.
Each teen begins by establishing trust with an adult mentor. Challenging activities and daily chores build a strong work ethic and numerous other desirable character qualities. Then, in context of a relationship with a mentor, the teen can tackle the conflicts that had held him or her back. We also use individual and group counseling to bring change in attitudes and behaviors.
Students at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also consists of independent study courses. All credits received transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced attribute of the coursework suits our students well, allowing them to learn in the way they find best and catch up on any missed credits. We believe discipline plays a key role in any worthwhile education, and we convey this in our classroom. In addition, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
True family restoration takes place only with the full cooperation of parents. We ask parents to attend three family workshops per year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their teen at our facility. We facilitate frequent contact between parents and their children using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face contact.
We are a Christ-centered youth ranch that leads adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, counseling, hard work and plenty of play, we stand by values and character traits that will serve your child all of his or her life. Please consider looking outside of South Dakota to see how our caring program can lead to restoration in your family.
